How to download animations for PowerPoint.
Covered in this video:
For PowerPoint, always download the largest animation available. This yields the best quality.
After clicking the download link, always choose "SAVE" to save the image to your computer. Choosing OPEN may end up removing the animation from the image.
In PowerPoint, always use the "Insert/Picture" function to place the animation in your presentation. Inserting it as a video or copying and pasting it into your presentation can yield poor results.
